7:40am
fairfield blowing pretty strong and that delta breeze helped carry that marine layer into the central valley. let's talk about what is happening right here at home. cup see it's very widespread by 9 or 10:00 we want to begin to burn off the north bay, far east inland, concord, livermore, south bay looking the mostly sunny skies. but still around lunchtime or so we've got it around the bay area. out bay area cities will continue to see this. looks like san rafael into san francisco at your lunch hour just clearing the oakland water front there. so we will be in between the partly cloudy skies and then for the late afternoon, it looks like it's going to just continue to hug the coast. may not see a lot of sunshine for the coastline today. it's the trough hanging over the west coast that will continue to bring us the onshore flow, that southwesterly breeze, and will continue to bring us the cooler air mass. for anywhere from five to 10 degrees below average for the bay area and inland from 10 to 15 degrees cooler than what we should get this time of year. right now temperatures not too bad but with gray skies, light
7:41am
breeze it does feel cool, 58 in concord. 57 in oakland. 55 san francisco. mid-50s santa rosa as well as napa. and your afternoon highs for today, look at actually pretty nice. that zoomed right by but we're looking at widespread upper 60s, for most of the bay area. inland spots will actually feel good and we'll continue to see the afternoon highs along the coast. a cool one. so upper 50s, low 60s coastside, inland spots mid and upper 70s from mid-july. wow. you might be saying keep this coming. it feels pretty good with le see changes. tomorrow temperatures warm slightly then a bigger bump by monday. inland spots at least looking at 84 degrees and then upper 80s tuesday, 90 degrees on wednesday. so you see the gradual warming trend there. meanwhile, on the coastline it will take longer. we'll still be in the low 60s tuesday into wednesday. we've got your day planner coming up in just a little bit. time is 7:41. we'll take you outside for a live look at the bay bridge
7:42am
toll plaza. look at that, looks like a little bit of a slowdown for folks who are not going through fast track lanes. so if you have to pay, it may be slower four this saturday morning. the bay area has some 474 miles of carpool lanes with more on the way. but the percentage of drivers who carpool is falling. only 10% of commuters in santa clara county carpooled last year, compared to 14% in 1980. however, carpool lanes do remain busy because of the number of cars in california has nearly tripled in the last 30 years. on average, people who carpool in the bay area travel about 19 miles an hour faster than solo drivers. striking down on immigration is not quite working out the way it was planned. why a new law in one state is backfiring on some businesses. and a new trend is filling up the stomach with happy commuters in marin county. but why some business owners aren't smiling.
